SBC plans billions on high-speed fiber | CNET

SBC plans billions on high-speed fiber | CNET "Hoping to better compete against cable and cell phone service providers, SBC Communications has begun a five-year, multibillion construction project to deploy high-speed fiber into much more of its network.
The $4 billion to $6 billion project will enable SBC to sell broadband that's more than five times faster than the service the company currently offers, SBC Chairman Ed Whitacre said here Tuesday during a keynote address at the telephone trade show Supercomm 2004. Over that higher-speed connection, SBC now has tentative plans to sell television programming using Microsoft's Internet-based TV technology, which it will begin testing later this year, along with less expensive Net phone dialing."
